After you add any of your friend’s ID, then the chosen friend will have the authority to write a post to display at the top of the memorialized Timeline (for example, to announce a memorial service or share a special message). And Respond to new friend requests from family members and friends, who were not yet connected on Facebook, Also they can Update the profile picture and cover photo.
